That's less than half. A nation that turns its back on God will not stand for long.
There’s more scientific evidence behind creationism than “global warming.”
The ignorance of this guy astounds me (and he's the author of a geology book?!). I know this is a complete waste of time because young-earth creationists are immune to reason, but rocks are folded when they're subjected to high stresses while buried down in the crust, not at the surface. Rock will indeed break if you try to bend it at the surface, but heat it up a bit, subject it to a few kilobars of confining pressure, and it's a different story.
Does this guy think God just randomly made folds in flood sediments (violating all known physical laws) in order to fool people? Oh, that's right, I forgot - it only fools those "godless" geologists (many who attend church every Sunday like myself) who don't interpret rock outcrops with a Bible in their hands.
OK, have at it. Quote 2 Peter 3:3 or a similar verse at me, call me a heretic, an atheist, or an evilutionist. Trust me on this, however, while you may convince people who couldn't tell a sandstone from a granite if it smacked them on the head, you're not making a dent in mainstream science.
Welcome Texas FReeper NOOB. I see you like to jump right in to the SBR. You rock.
Welcome to Free Republic.
In the United States the old but bitter debate between evolution and creationism is heating up again. Three of the Republican presidential candidates do not believe in evolution and a high-tech creation museum recently opened in Kentucky.The issue has been on the burner for about ten years. The relatively new incarnation of Intelligent Design (and its test(s) in the court room) has helped, but you don't have the stances of presidential candidates on evolution make headlines unless there has been a significant foundation laid for interest towards the issue.
Much of the debate has been fuelled by a book claiming the Grand Canyon, one of America's most well-known landmarks, was carved by Noah's flood rather than erosion.Totally wrong. This was just one of many disputes that cropped up around the country on the creation/evolution debate, and hasn't made any headlines (that I'm aware of) since the dumb PEER debacle back in '06.
Opinion polls suggest 43 per cent of Americans believe God created humans in their present form within the last 10,000 years. Only 14 per cent believe humans evolved without divine involvement.It would be interesting to note what polls the author is citing, because the numbers vary.
Exactly: I don’t see what (some) darwinists have against the teaching of empirical evidence against darwinism? Shouldn’t ALL the evidence be looked at, not just that (btw many of the early darwinist evidence has been debunked as hoaxes, and/or bad science) that uphold their worldview..?
If someone is honest they won’t take ANYONE’S word for it and will openly, but honestly explore empirical evidence for themselves, it seem so many don’t want to do this though (not just evolutionists, btw).
But all evidence should be looked at openly, not just that that favors “one side”.
(Censorship) is what happens most often!
I predict 550 posts or more.
Making a comeback? Since when did it ever go away? Them saying so didn't make it happen. They're really just horrified to find out they were wrong.
Where do they get off thinking they can make demands like that? Do they own the park? Nobody is forcing anyone to buy the books. Mind control police.
“Hope???” If you mean you hope we all go back to the days when we all sat in caves and died of disease before we turned thirty, by all means do so, because the whole world would be better off without you, but don’t force the rest of us to believe your retarded fairy tales.
From memory, Mt St. Helens proved:
1. The melting snow caused a flash flood that carved a canyon overnight, far short of the expected millions of years.
2. Spirit Lake was filled with dead trees, that over time became water logged and began to pop upright with their uprooted trunks catching the shore, the settling ash in the water encased the trees were they ran aground in the lake bed and started the process for a petrified forest.
3. Mt St Helens deposited its own 25 ft layer of strata that scientists would never guess could have occurred over night.

If you can't figure out the obvious, you really shouldn't be writing a book about it.
